Discover the petanque court and our well stocked box of outdoor games. As well as superfast wifi – even by the pool. There is so much to discover at La Tannerie.
An amazing two week holiday in September 2023. Jenny and Ken were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and their knowledge of the surrounding area very good. A very thoughtful welcome pack with essentials and yummy treats was awaiting us on arrival. The gite was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed.
New for 2022
When La Tannerie was open as a functioning tannery, the large barn operated as the main workshop. It was a hive of activity where as many as 60 workers were employed to make state of the art leather buttons.
The larger barn ‘L’atelier du Bouton’ opened this year and sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms.
La Tannerie can now sleep up to 14 guests.
